AttributeError: type object 'java.sql.Types' has no attribute '__javaclass__'
In my previous article Connect to SQL Server via JayDeBeApi in Python, I showed examples of using Python package jaydebeapi to connect to SQL Server via JDBC.
The code was working properly. However after I reinstall Python 3.8.2 x64 version on Windows, I'm getting a new error:
***\lib\site-packages\jaydebeapi\__init__.py", line 182, in _jdbc_connect_jpype for i in types.__javaclass__.getClassFields(): AttributeError: type object 'java.sql.Types' has no attribute '__javaclass__'
This error can happen when connecting to Oracle, Teradata, SQLite, SQL Server, Hive, MySQL and PostgreSQL via JDBC driver..
The root cause of this issue is with JPype1 package which JayDeBeApi package relies on. My version is 0.7.2 (the latest as at 2020-04-10).
To fix it, I downgrade its version to 0.6.3 using the following command:
pip install --upgrade jpype1==0.6.3 --user
After downgrade the version, the code snippet in my previous article now works properly again.
There is one GitHub issue related to this: https://github.com/baztian/jaydebeapi/issues/131.
